I wanted to say a big thank you to Duncan and the team for looking after me throughout my implant treatment.
I am very grateful and more than happy to tell everyone about my implant. Friends and colleagues are so surprised to know that I have an implant at the front of my mouth. I find people are very complimentary about my smile and I'm delighted with the way it looks and feels like my other teeth.
When I came to the clinic I had been unlucky with my previous dentistry. Something always seemed to go wrong with my treatment with this tooth in particular. I was one of the unlucky few whose tooth died whilst wearing my braces. I noticed the tooth's shade change which alerted me to the problem. My dentist reassured me that all could be restored but unfortunately whilst having my root canal treatment the file fractured through the apex of the tooth leaving a small fragment through the end. It was fine for many years others than the darkening root which my dentist tried to keep whiter with internal bleaching. Eventually a sinus appeared and I had to have an apiecectomy with my previous dentist. This worked for a while. The tooth became unsightly around the neck of the tooth and root. He tried to whiten it from the surface but nothing helped. When I first came to the clinic Duncan kindly made me a lovely veneer for my wedding but this would just be for the short term as the symptomless tooth's root was not looking great on X-ray. Duncan suggested removing the tooth and having an implant placed. He said it would look so much better (he was so right!) I was a bit apprehensive on the day but the nurses helped me through. It wasn't the treatment that worried me but more that I was having my front tooth removed. I was concerned that I may lose the gum structure and be left with a dark gap between my teeth. I need not have worried. Everyone was so supportive they knew I might shed a tear when it was extracted and made me feel so much better by their reassurance and kind words. The temporary crown that Duncan made on the day looked so much better than my own tooth that I kept it for nearly a year. I am over the moon with my new crown! It looks amazing! The soft tissues and crown are hard to tell apart from my own teeth.
I would like to thank everyone involved including the skilled lab technician who worked so hard to make it look so real. I can't thank you all enough.Cheryl
